About 7 years ago I made a vow to myself to eliminate needless drama and gossip from my life. The challenge was that during this process I lost people I thought were friends. Trust me, I haven't been perfect in this process, it's a slow and steady unfolding. Gossip is enticing. The wake up call for me was that if these "friends" were talking shit about other "friends," what were they saying about me when I wasn't there?Fast forward to today . . . I surround myself with supportive people who love and care about me. My mind is free of clutter. My heart has more room for compassion. My soul is happier. Love yourself enough to not get sucked into drama. You will thank yourself.
